Should I retake?

Postby painsinmysides » Thu Jan 07, 2010 3:36 pm

Hey guys,

I am looking to get in to a T14. I received a 167 (my average on tests was 171-172). So far I have been rejected from GULC, waitlisted at UVA, and deferred early action at Cornell.

I have been accepted to BU, Fordham, and USC.

I am wondering if I should bother taking the Feb LSAT and see if I can boost my score. I

I understand that I may receive some decision before I get my score, but it my help with deferrals/wls.

I am not sure. What do you all think?

Do you think the gap between T14 and say BU is that significant in terms of future prospects?

Northeast.

I am not sure about career outlook. I want to work at a big firm, and would like to entertain advisory positions later down the road on various policy issues...
